Vash - Taking this to PMs. Nothing that is given in them is legal advice or can reliably be construed as anything other than insane rantings.

How much did you get back if you don't mind sharing?

Supposed to get $2000 back, got a check for $1000. No note, no interest, no nothing.

I just called the state rental security investigator and left a message. Hopefully I'll get a callback sometime today.

Is that 2000 after you double the 1000 because it took over 30 days to get it back?

No. According to this "double the security rule" we should be getting $4000 + interest.

I would definitely go to court for that. I would probably go to court and after that was settled do everything in my power to legally **** his life over

Just my 2c Vash, but if you are seriously considering any kind of legal action, I'd not be posting on a public forum about it. I've seen a lot of seemingly easy court cases get ruined due to FB/forum/etc. posts.

Does that rule apply if the LL is a 80 yr old guy that probably doesn't even have a computer?

I just got of the phone with my love and she said lets take him to court!

If I'm entitled to another $3000 + interest, I'll make time.

I think you should go for it.

Collecting may be a bitch but not impossible. Ask for the remaining 3 and hope for half. You make out anyway.

If I were in a similar position, I would keep any statements I make here factual, and encertain any speculation is made clear it is just that. I would keep away from anything even remotely inflammatory or angry. Even then, I'd post as little as possible - statements posted on the internet count as "written statements" in court in most jurisdictions, with all the implications thereof.

Yup, stop talking on the internet. For realz though, he is still not in compliance with the law. To simply send you a check without written justification is HIM being a complete asshat. He's required to tell you what/why he's keeping certain funds, and an honorable guy will include a breakdown with receipts and pics. The fact that he's being intentionally evasive will be clear to the judge and weigh heavily in your favor. You've essentially just one your case.

As Blaen said, everybody's experience is different, but somebody being that intentionally difficult will have no defense in front of a judge.

Wait until your blood pressure goes down, then write the letter I talked about earlier, stating their non-compliance with the law, and your request that the remainder of your deposit be returned immediately. Get the letter in the mail today. If you don't hear anything back by Tuesday afternoon, send them another letter, indicating your intent is to file suit, and give them until the following Monday. If nothing heard by COB Monday, go file on Tuesday. That's all you need to do now. This is all business now, nothing personal, nothing emotional... just business. Do it by nice and cool from here on out and the Judge will be very sympathetic.

Just to add a little to this: This is also required to be written. Verbally telling someone about damages is not satisfying the law.

At least in Vash's state, and all states I'm aware of. Verbally informing someone of apartment damages in these cases has slightly less legal worth than my last crap - and let me tell you, as disgusting as it was, only Pushy would have put any kind of worth on it.
